Authenticate Stream Analytics egress to Azure Blob Storage using managed identities
Updated: 17 July, 2019
Azure Stream Analytics supports managed identity authentication with egress to Azure Blob Storage. The identity is a managed application registered in Azure Active Directory that represents a given Stream Analytics job, and can be used to authenticate to a targeted resource. Managed identities eliminate the limitations of user-based authentication methods, such as needing to reauthenticate due to password changes or user token expirations that occur every 90 days.
